What Travis fails to mention is, each fly costs $20 bucks to tie. Just kidding of course, more like $15. Not my style, but as I have always said, if it brings you joy, your hook your rules. I caught my first steelhead on a size 2 Boss. For the first few years it became the only fly I would fish. I had confidence in the fly and it seemed to work. It did not take long to find out I could tie and fish all kinds of patterns with the same results. I use this a lot, so sorry for the duplication. Steelhead will eat you car key. If the fly you are fishing matches the conditions, and you are making proper presentations and there is fish in the river, you should find positive results. Where you set the limits on what you will fish should be up to you. If the prom dress bring you confidence, then by all means tie them up. I however, have found joy in fishing flies dressed with more natural materials. Good luck with your quest, its a journey we all take.
